AMD’s RX 6600 XT and RX 6600 rumoured to launch August 11th

We have been eagerly waiting for AMD to announce the Radeon RX 6600 series GPUs ever since the launch of the RX 6700 XT back in March. Until now, AMD hasn’t yet shared an official release date for the mainstream series graphics cards, but a new rumour claims that they are scheduled to launch on August 11th. 

If AMD is planning to release the Radeon RX 6600 series graphics cards on August 11th, we may see an announcement soon. After all, we’re just three weeks away from the alleged release of the Radeon RX 6600 series cards, according to Fudzilla (via VideoCardz).

As per the latest rumours, the Radeon RX 6600 XT and the Radeon RX 6600 will be based on the Navi 23 GPU, with the first featuring a fully enabled die with 2048 stream processors, and the latter sporting a cut-down die with 1792 stream processors. Both cards should feature 8GB of GDDR6 memory across a 128-bit memory bus, but the Radeon RX 6600 may also feature a 4GB variant.

While a single-fan AMD reference card has been shown off in various slides, AMD is expected to launch these cards its through board partners, as was the case with the RX 5600 XT. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but considering the RX 6700 XT and the RTX 3060 MSRPs, we’ll take a stab and suggest the Radeon RX 6600 XT will be priced at around £350, with the non-XT model coming in slightly cheaper.

One of the biggest selling points of the Xbox 360 and PS3 was the fact that these systems were capable of outputting games in HD. Yet, as consoles support higher and higher resolutions, we have seen developers focus less on offering games at such resolutions, instead using new rendering techniques to create what may be the start of the post-resolution gaming experience...
